Site Review: Sizzling Popcorn

Sizzling Popcorn 320x200Hi all!

A few weeks back, Jean at Sizzling Popcorn was the winner of a contest I held at the Lair and one part of the “winnings” was a review of his site. It’s taken a while, but I’m finally getting back to that!

When I first started with Entrecard, I ran across Sizzling Popcorn’s initial incarnation as a blog and was impressed by the width and depth of some of the reviews there. When Jean got his own domain and retooled his site with the new look, I was even more impressed.

SP focuses on the breadth of movies in the industry — everything from Action and Adventure to Documentary and Drama, and everything in-between. Each review is rated on the SP system:

  • Sizzling Popcorn – a great movie that is bound for awards shows
  • Butter Popcorn – a great movie that may not be bound for the awards shows
  • Popcorn – a good, but not great movie
  • Kernel – not so good, but may be a renter
  • and Burnt Popcorn – which isn’t worth watching

Not only did the site revamp a few months ago change the look and feel of SP, but it gave it a lot more flexibility in terms of graphical layout, advertising, sponsoring, and so on.


Jean always gets the jump on new movies and movie news too — most recently, Jean got to see premieres of several movies and I was jealous!

I have to admit that SP is one of those sites I head to when I’m debating on seeing a movie at the theater or not. I don’t always agree with Jean, but more often than not we seem to have a similar feel for various movies. And it’s always good to get a second opinion. 🙂

So we at the Lair wish Sizzling Popcorn all the best and hope that Jean continues to do well with the site!

Who knows who I might review next? 7 Miles Down? Reel Ninja?

Until then… Check out Sizzling Popcorn and enjoy some movies!

  1. Thanks for the review! It’s always great to see that people like your work and that you have an influence on other people’s decisions. This Friday will officially be 6 months since the beginnings of the site/business! Every time I look back to February, I am amazed how quickly the site has grown, how much I’ve learned in the film industry, the many contacts I’ve made, and the increase love for films!

  2. Nice site review. I had been out to that site before and a lot of good/fun content. It is always nice to see site cross/sharing between similar content based websites.
